Disappointing but not bad.
The beer is well balanced, good malt and piney hops here. Get subtle hints of floral hops, and touches of citrusy pineapple. The bitterness isn't really controlled enough, the sweetness of the citrus side not really pulling it back. That said, the bitterness isn't really too overbearing, so while uncontrolled its still entirely drinkable if you're used to this.
I don't think its worth the price tag. I also got this thing for 8 bucks and was expecting more, really. Kind of overpriced in a market where I know plenty of other IPA's and DIPA's that are better that I can get from anywhere from 25% cheaper to half that price.
